returning to original caliber
I have a Colt New Service "1917" that was originally in 455 Eley but has been altered to shoot 45 Colt (which it does very well). I have acquired an unaltered 455 Eley cylinder and was wondering what all is involved in returning it back to 455 Eley?
Also the revolver has been refinished and has had part of the caliber stamp on the barrel polished off. Where it used to say "New Service 455 Eley" it now says "New Service 45" followed by a rather unsightly flat spot. Does anyone have a 5 1/2" new service barrel with the 455 Eley stamp on it?
My intention is to do a "restoration" on it. I would like to retuen it to 455 Eley, replace the barrel with one that has the right mark on it, & refinish it back to a finish that mimics the factory finish. Thanks.
